NSC Report: No State Receives an "A" for Safety

The report says no state goes far enough to protect its residents from preventable deaths.

A new report from the NSC says that no state goes far enough to protect its residents from leading causes of preventable deaths and injuries on the road, in homes, and at work. With preventable deaths at an all-time high, none of the 50 states, as well as Washington D.C., earned an “A” for overall safety.

Seven states received a “B” rating, while eleven states received an “F.” The report marks the end of National Safety Month, which draws attention to eliminating preventable deaths.

“The cultural novocaine has to wear off,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council.  “Safety is no accident. We lose more than 140,000 people because of events we know how to prevent. This report provides states with a blueprint for saving lives, and we hope lawmakers, civic leaders, public health professionals and safety advocates use it to make their communities measurably safer.”
